WPl 2023: Shafali has taken the pitch against Gujarat Giants out of the equation: Lanning

Mumbai Shafali Verma’s scintillating 28-ball 76 not out in Delhi Capitals’ chase left even their inspirational captain Meg Lanning in awe. Lanning admitted that the innings that explosive batsman Shefali played against Gujarat Giants on Saturday was not expected in the Women’s Premier League (WPL). Delhi’s Marijne Kapp took five wickets for 15 runs as the Gujarat team could only manage 105 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs.

After this, Shefali destroyed Gujarat’s bowling with 10 fours and five sixes and teamed up with Lanning (21 not out) to give the team a 10-wicket win. “I didn’t expect Shefali to play an innings like that, I don’t think anyone else would have,” Lanning told reporters after the match. played the part. When this happens in T20 cricket, you just have to go with it. The Delhi captain said that the pitch initially helped the fast bowlers.

He said, “The pitch was helping the new ball bowlers. If you bowl the right line and length which we felt was helping. “But Shafali took the wicket out of the equation, she backed herself, according to her strengths,” Lanning said. Played on, stayed steady and hit it straight. If you do that on these wickets, you will be successful. I love standing on the other end and watching him do his job.

Lanning also praised Marijne Kapp for her five-wicket haul that set the platform for the Delhi team’s victory. Gujarat Giants head coach Rachel Haynes has admitted that her side made a mistake by not including Sophia Dunkley, whose 65-run knock made the difference against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Haynes said, “Marijan is a great bowler and I don’t want to take anything away from her.” Dropping a batsman who performed in the last match, I’m not sure it was the right decision.

“We have had two players in this tournament who scored half-centuries and Dunk (Sophia Dunkley) was probably one of the best T20 innings I have seen in a long time. We need players in form in this competition, the best players to face the most balls.
